What do you prefer using when starting a project and you need a website? Do you download/buy a website theme, are you using builders like Wix or do you just design and code it yourself? I'm genuinely curious about this since I'm a maker in this area and I would love to hear your take on this.

The vast majority of web projects will end up with a success if you buy a theme or use a paid service, i.e. website builder, and dedicate most resources to the content creation. Not vice versa!

You may create your own website with Wix, but I prefer using WordPress as it is more user friendly. Visit my website at
